I second that! It's a bean homous, more or less.

Soaking them overnight and then boiling them is much easier (and wastes less energy too).
But fuul is completely smooth - does that mean they're peeled beforehand? :( Too much work.

Of course I have Fuul with traditional Egyptian meals. Its that yucky brownish paste stuff. Can't say I'm that partial to it but its ok, sort of.

I certainly would never order it out of preference though. Now Felafel is a different matter :P

The lady who lives across from us (in Seul, not in UK :lol: ) makes lovely fuul :P
She cooks the beans in the traditional way overnight in a pot partly burried in the ground. It is really very good and nothing like the pasty tasteless stuff you sometimes get on sandwiches :lol:
We have to eat it every day when we are there because the kida love it ! although we do have the tinned stuff whilst in the UK it's not the same.

Jane the fuul you have spoken about at 'Abrahims' for breakfast it really good isn't it :P :P

BB, talk to the man in the shop on the Ramla, we had the most wonderful fuul for breakfast there - his wife may give you the recipe ;)
